Actor Paul Walker, best known for his roles in the "Fast and the Furious" action movies, died on Saturday in a car crash in Southern California, his publicist said.
Walker, 40, who was in five of the six films about illegal street racing and heists, was a passenger in a friend's car and was attending a charity event, according to a message linked to his Twitter account.
"Sadly, I must confirm that Paul did pass away this afternoon in a car accident," Ame Van Iden, Walker's publicist, said in an email.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement that two people were killed in a car accident in Valencia, a community in the city of Santa Clarita, at about 3:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. ET).
Deputies arriving at the scene found the vehicle engulfed in flames. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene, the statement said. The office did not provide the identities of the dead, and said the cause was under investigation.
In the "Fast and Furious" pictures, the blond-haired, blue-eyed actor played Brian O'Conner, a law enforcement official.
The first movie in the series, which stars Vin Diesel, was released in 2001, and a seventh was in development at the time of his death, Universal, the studio behind the franchise, said in a statement. The most recent film, released in May, was one of this year's biggest box office hits.
"Brother I will miss you very much," Diesel said in a post on Instagram, adding "I am absolutely speechless. Heaven has gained a new Angel. Rest in Peace."
Walker also made guest appearances on television shows, including "Charles in Charge" and "Who's the Boss?" and had a role in the soap opera, "The Young and the Restless."
Other film appearances include "Timeline," "Into the Blue," "The Lazarus Project" and "Hours," which is slated for release in December.
Miley Cyrus' AMA performance gets mocked by Carrie
Underwood on Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon.
It was bound to happen! Miley’s cat-tastic performance at the American Music Awards was finally lampooned on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ when the country singer turned “Wrecking Ball” into a Thanksgiving-themed song.
We loved Miley Cyrus‘ performance at the AMAs on Nov. 24 — which featured her in a skimpy leotard simply singing “Wrecking Ball” while an animated cat mouthed the words behind her — but we can’t say we’re surprised it’s getting made fun of. Country singer Carrie Underwood did the honors in a hilarious performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Nov. 28.
The spoof started with Jimmy Fallon and actress Rashida Jones singing other Thanksgiving-themed songs. They rocked out about getting turkey in a parody of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky,” and they even sang a song about Hanukkah to the music of Lorde‘s “Royals” (we’re sure she’ll have an opinion about that).
But the highlight definitely came when Carrie made a surprise appearance in front of, yep, an animated singing cat! As she bellowed out, “You made me cook a butterball/And then a green bean casserole,” the cat sang along with a pilgrim hat on in a perfect imitation of Miley at the AMAs.
It was definitely all in good fun, though Carrie really could have taken it to the next level by donning Miley’s signature, crotch-baring onesie.
And actually, HollywoodLife reported exclusively that Miley’s performance in itself was a bit of a diss. The producers of the AMAs warned performers to avoid being racy, and the “We Can’t Stop” singer cleverly lashed out at their Puritan request.
It would be interesting to hear what Miley thinks of Carrie’s Late Night spoof.
BOSTON — Two explosions shattered the finish of the Boston Marathon on Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry away the injured while stragglers in the 26.2-mile race were rerouted away from the smoking site. Boston police say that (at the time of posting) 2 people are dead, 6 are in critical condition, and 100+ injured after a pair of bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The Boston police have also said they found 3 more “explosive devices” that they are investigating. Another bomb also exploded at the JFK Library in Boston an hour later.
Competitors and race volunteers were crying as they fled the chaos. Bloody spectators were being carried to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners.
“There are a lot of people down,” said one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter of North Carolina. He was not injured, but marathon workers were carrying one woman, who did not appear to be a runner, to the medical area as blood gushed from her leg. A Boston police officer was wheeled from the course with a leg injury that was bleeding.
About three hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another explosion could be heard a few seconds later.
Smoke rose from the blasts, fluttering through the national flags lining the route of the world’s oldest and most prestigious marathon. TV helicopter footage showed blood staining the pavement in the popular shopping and tourist area known as the Back Bay.
“There are people who are really, really bloody,” said Laura McLean, a runner from Toronto, who was in the medical tent being treated for dehydration when she was pulled out to make room for victims of the explosions. “They were pulling them into the medical tent.”
“I was expecting my husband any minute,” Cherie Falgoust said. “I don’t know what this building is … it just blew. Just a big bomb, a loud boom, and then glass everywhere. Something hit my head. I don’t know what it was. I just ducked.”
Runners who had not finished the race were diverted straight down Commonwealth Avenue and into a family meeting area, according to an emergency plan that had been in place.
Lululemon, the Vancouver-based retailer of yoga pants, just recalled a about 17 percent of its stock of stretchy bottoms because they are too sheer. In a statement titled “Black Luon Pants Shortage Expected” the company said they would work with their suppliers to get stock back as soon as possible but also noted, “We expect this issue will have a significant impact on our financial results.”
That’s tough because up until the see-through hip huggers started trickling back in from unsatisfied customers, Lululemon’s comps at stores open for a year were up 11 percent. Now they’re only projecting an increase between 5 – 8 percent.
Lululemon had been riding a recent surge in demand for women’s athletic wear, along with competitors such as Gap Inc.’s Athleta, Under Armour Inc. and even mass-market retailers such as Forever 21 and Victoria’s Secret.
Some were quick to criticize Lululemon for cheaping out on fabric as the company grew. Not so, they say. “We have used the same manufacturing partner on key fabrics since 2004. This event is not the result of changing manufacturers or quality of ingredients. We are working closely with them to understand what happened during the period this fabric was made.”
Lululemon is now offering affected customers full refunds or exchanges while also warning of an impending shortage of black yoga pants. The recalled apparel makes up 17% of the women’s pants and crop pants Lululemon sells in stores.
The death of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, the latest in a string of tragic NFL suicides, has left the player’s teammates, coaches, family and friends wondering what could have led a man described as generous and caring to murder his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins — the mother of his 3-month-old daughter — and then kill himself.
“When the officers arrived, when they were pulling up, they actually observed a black male who had a gun to his head and he was talking to a couple of coaches out in the parking lot,” Kansas City Police spokesman Darin Snapp told ABC News Radio. “As officers pulled up, and began to park, that’s when they heard the gunshot and it appears the individual took his own life.”
It’s not yet clear what prompted Belcher’s actions, but his suicide follows those of former NFL players Junior Seau, 43, and Dave Duerson, 50, both of whom died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the chest in the last two years.
The suicides of Seau, Duerson and a number of other NFL players have been blamed on concussions racked up from playing the violent sport, and a condition called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, but that may not be the case for Belcher.
Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said today that Belcher was “a player who had not had a long concussion history,” even though he was a three-time all-America wrestler and a star on the football team at his West Babylon, N.Y., high school.
Ben Savage will be playing Cory Matthews once again! The actor has joined the cast of “Girl Meets World,” the sequel series to the ’90s ABC comedy “Boy Meets World,” according to the Disney Channel. Danielle Fishel will also reprise her “Boy Meets World” role as Topanga Lawrence for the pilot.
Disney Channel confirms the pilot is still in “very early stages of development” and that a nationwide casting search is still underway for 13-year-old Riley Matthews. “Girl Meets World” will follow Cory (Savage) and Topanga’s (Fishel) teen daughter Riley. “Boy Meets World” creator Michael Jacobs is behind the project.
The cast for “Girl Meets World” will also include Maya, Riley’s edgy best friend.
In the new series Cory will be a history teacher, just like his “Boy Meets World” mentor Mr. Feeny.
“I’m very excited for Disney and [creator] Michael Jacobs,” William Russ, who played Cory’s dad Alan Matthews on the series, said in a statement to HuffPost TV. “They are a great team and will produce an exceptional show, I have no doubt.”
Anthony Tyler Quinn, who played Mr. Turner on “Boy Meets World,” told HuffPost TV he’d be interested in appearing on the new series.
“‘Boy Meets World’ was and continues to be these beautiful brushstrokes in my life,” he said. “It was a wonderful experience, and I think Michael’s going to create something fresh. I’d love to be a part of it.”
The International Flying Car Association (IFCA) said (2) major announcements that took place yesterday introduced flying cars on the world stage. The announcements expected to be followed by a substantial influx of information seekers flooding the Internet and major news sources with requests for further information.
Although these companies serve different markets, they are both considered flying cars. The first vehicle is a road-able aircraft, primarily used as a small fixed/foldable wing plane which you can land and drive home. The second company’s product is a vehicle that serves both purposes equally and allows owners to use it as their primary vehicle, whether driving or flying, or both.
These developments, in conjunction with advancements worldwide, have brought the flying car industry to a turning point. In anticipation, we are proud to announce the creation of the International Flying Car Association, the central resource center for information and communication between the flying car industry, news networks, governments, and those seeking further information worldwide.
Services provided by IFCA include, but are not limited to, a quarterly publication providing updates on the industry as well as surveys and forums that will allow those interested to be able to express their opinions and help influence the future as the industry develops.
Mayim Bialik doesn’t believe in diapers. January Jones takes capsules made of her baby’s placenta. And now we have Alicia Silverstone chewing up food and spitting the food into baby Bear’s mouth. Avant-garde celeb moms abound!
Silverstone has posted a note and video on her site explaining her unusual feeding style with Bear, 10 months.
“I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum! I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It’s his favorite…and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating. This video was taken about a month or 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!”
Well, this is rather embarrassing, isn’t it? The reality star was casually strutting her stuff down the red carpet at the launch of her own perfume when out of nowhere someone chucks flour all over her.
It didn’t help that Kim had opted for black leather trousers and a black jacket that night either, because there’s no way white flour was going to go unnoticed.
Kim was quickly ushered into a private room with her mother and her team tried to get rid of any traces of the trusty cooking ingredient.
Surprisingly, she decided to go back to the event, well we suppose she did have her perfume True Reflection to promote.
Nothing is going to get in the way of the Queen of promotion and getting her product out there.
The flour thrower was arrested and the fire department were called to the scene to inspect the substance, which within seconds they realised was flour.
The fire department? Surely anyone could see it was flour and not anthrax but you know what the Americans are like. Dramas.
Speaking about it afterwards Kim made a surprisingly witty comment, although we’re guessing she didn’t come up with itself. She said: ‘That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me,’
‘Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.’
Kim, rather wisely we think, has decided not to press charges. Some reports have suggested it may have been an anti-fur protestor but we can think of a million and one other reasons why someone might want to chuck something at Kim. Just saying.
